Saami, Sami

Guernica, Pablo Picasso, 1937.


"The geographical area which is often called Sápmi stretches from Idre in Dalecarlia in the middle of Sweden, to the Arctic Sea in northern Norway, and the Cola peninsula in Russia. This area was the traditional dwellingplace of the Sami people. The borders drawn by the national states has split up the Sami people in four states. The name "Sápmi" can also refer to the people as a whole."
